Elephant & Castle has long been a focal point for Latin and South American restaurants in London, and Elephant Road’s Lenos y Carbon is one such place with a particular penchant for Colombian cuisine. With a great selection of tapas, appetisers and main courses, drinks aplenty and most importantly a warm welcome – especially to those uninitiated into the pleasures of South American culinary culture – Lenos y Carbon’s unofficial motto and friendly word of warning, typical of the humour of Colombia, is the only risk is wanting to stay!

Southeast London’s Lenos y Carbon offers up long and comprehensive a la carte menu of South American dishes with an emphasis on Colombian gastronomy, but also daily lunch menus for every day of the week besides the weekends (more than one menu for Monday and Tuesday).
